This spicy, savory pasta is out of this world. The sauce is comprised of cashews, giving it a creamy flavor profile, chilis in adobo sauce add a hint of smoke and fire, sun-dried tomatoes a rich tomato flavor, Shiitake bacon adds an additional texture and smokiness, and the kale gives it some green. It’s easy, cheesy, and will likely become a staple in your weeknight recipe rotation.

Ingredients

For the Pasta:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small onion, chopped (about 1/2 cup)
  • 4 carrots, peeled, diced
  • 1 cup vegetable broth
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced (about 1 tablespoon)
  • 2 28-ounce cans fire roasted diced tomatoes
  • 4 servings of cooked pasta of choice (gluten-free, grain-free, etc…)
  • 2 chilis in adobo sauce, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon adobo sauce
  • 3/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 4 sun-dried tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1/3 cup flour of choice
  • 1 cup cashews
  • 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
  • 2 cups shredded kale
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil, for garnish

For the Shiitake Bacon:

  • 1 8-ounce package Shiitake mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon tamari
  • 1 tablespoon liquid smoke
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon vegan Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes

Preparation

To Make the Shiitake Bacon:

  1. Slice the mushrooms, coat in all the ingredients and bake in the oven on 250°F for 30 minutes. Rotate the mushrooms in midway for an even cook. Mushrooms should be crispy, not hard.

To Make the Sauce:

  1. Heat oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add onion, carrot, and garlic; cook 7-10 minutes, until vegetables are soft. Add the tomato paste and cook until it begins to caramelize.
  2. Sprinkle the flour in while continuously stirring and cook for an additional 3 minutes. Add crushed tomatoes, broth, sun-dried tomatoes, basil, red pepper, and bring to a boil, then cover, and reduce to a simmer for 10 minutes. Allow the flavors to combine by simmering for 25-30 minutes.
  3. Soak cashews in hot water for 5 minutes, drain water, and set aside. Purée sauce in blender or food processor until smooth. Add the pre-soaked cashews and nutritional yeast, puree again, and put back into saucepan; return to simmer. Remove from heat, and stir in almond milk. Season with salt and pepper, if desired.

To Serve:

  1. Toss the pasta in the sauce and shredded kale, and top with sun-dried tomatoes, and Shiitake bacon. Garnish with basil.
